Wilmington, Del. – Wilmington Trust, N.A., a leader in corporate and institutional trust services, today announced Fiona Boger will become head of its M&A Shareholder Representative Business, a new product offering from Wilmington Trust. In this role, Fiona will be responsible for the development, strategy, and day-to-day management of the business. She will report to Wilmington Trust’s Head of M&A Administration, Laron Galea.
“It’s not every day you come across talented people like Fiona,” said Laron. “Her proven ability to nurture business offerings to their fullest potential, along with her technical and leadership skills, will enable us to enhance our new M&A shareholder business. We are truly honored and grateful to have her join our team.”
Fiona previously worked for SRS Acquiom for over eight years, most recently as an Escrow & Paying Agent executive. At SRS Acquiom, she was initially responsible for ensuring contract compliance, resolution of indemnification claims, and coordinating the distribution of proceeds to shareholders post-closing.
